Hello everyone.

I am currently looking at the Unity Lens and I have decided to try and make one.
I was thinking I could make a simple lens to show the top posts in the main categories of this forum.

So I was wondering if this forum supports some kind of API that allows me to do this?

You should download and parse the html, i think...

Aside from a few custom scripts that ubuntu-geek created, the forum runs on vBulletin v3.8.4, so you should be able to get the needed info from vBulletin.

I just looked at the HTML that curl retrieves and I think it will do what I want.
But I I will ever want to do something more complicated, I think I will havet orestort to vBulletin.

Thanks for you advice.
